Franklin County Landfill Markets Natural Gas
Listen to the Story
A landfill in central Ohio is among the first in the world to be converting a gas released in the decomposition of trash into fuel for vehicles.

Now working with the California based company FirmGreen, SWACO is turning the methane into compressed natural gas, or CNG, which can be used in some vehicles.
